peanut ladoo recipe with step by step photos – a two ingredient easy recipe of delicious ladoos made with roasted peanuts and jaggery.

peanuts are loved at my place. usually we just roast the peanuts and store them in an air tight jar. so when we want to snack on, we just have some peanuts. i do not add any salt or spices to the roasted peanuts and keep them plain. peanuts are nutrient dense nuts and so its good to include them in your food.

with roasted peanuts, i also make peanuts ladoos. there are many ways of making peanut ladoos either solely only with peanuts or with addition of ingredients like coconut, sesame seeds or nuts. some recipes call for a soft ball or hard ball consistency in jaggery syrup for making peanut ladoos. i will add this recipe too in some time.

in the ladoo recipe shared here, only two ingredients are required – peanuts and jaggery. all you need is to roast the peanuts, grind with jaggery powder and you are sorted. the recipe is similar to making peanut butter, just that we are not grinding the peanuts too much. just enough so that it can be shaped into a ladoo.

these peanut ladoos stay good for about a week at room temperature and for 15 to 20 days in the fridge. you can serve these ladoos plain or even serve it as a sweet snack in the tiffin box. the recipe can also be easily doubled or tripled.
